    Default For DS on Father's Day

    It's said that man is made in God's own image
    But in your case this isn't true
    You're half of your father, half of your mother
    And entirely, perfectly you

    And when I look into your innocent face
    I no longer wonder how I got to this place
    My heart's filled with the love of two, boy,
    My heart's filled with enough love for two.

    Every year when this day comes
    I worry about what I will say
    When you'll start to ask me questions, like
    What happened? Why didn't dad stay?

    And when I think of all the disgrace,
    The sorrow, the pain and the heartache -
    Well, I cried enough for two, boy,
    Enough for me and you.

    I'm sorry I couldn't start you
    With the life that you deserve
    But every day I'm grateful
    That you chose to come to Earth

    And here you are, snuggled into my embrace
    As you smile while you dream about cowboys in space,
    It's enough with just me and you, boy,
    All I need is you.


    What would you like to say to your child/ren on this fine Father's Day?

    Thanks :-)

    It's amazing what can fall into your brain while you're stuck waiting for your kid to wake up :-p

    Beautiful words Harvs. What I would say to my kids on Father's Day if I could: 'Don't let your dad attack your self esteem, you are your own person and you are valuable, unique and awesome. Make sure you check your seat belts as your dad forgets and he drives like a crazy man'. What I did say 'wow, what beautiful cards you made for your dad. He will love them! Have a great time'.

    Beautiful harvs! Really special writing.


    I'd like to say to DD that you have two mums instead of a mum and a dad but you have two parents who love you more than you could possibly imagine. You have many men in your life who will be more than happy to look after you, love you and be your role models.

    That's so lovely. We have kids at our school with two mums, and I love that no one bats an eyelid over it. And this is in the conservative country. So there's hope :-)

    Thanks @harvs I know how lucky our DD is... But I hope she isn't left out because of her parents. It's something I'll always be worried about.
